==SPRINT==> Search Documentation

Query Fields
PRINTS Accn/IdPRINTS accession number (e.g. PR00982) or identifier (e.g. TRNASYNTHLYS) for a fingerprint.
Family TitleFamily title for a fingerprint, e.g. Lysyl-tRNA synthetase signature
Sequence Accn/IdSWISS-PROT or Trembl sequence accession number (e.g. P43825) or identifier (e.g. SYK_HAEIN) for a protein sequence such as Haemophilus influenzae lysyl-trna synthetase.
Motif ElementProtein sequence segment contributing to a fingerprint motif, e.g. H.influenzae lysyl-trna synthetase contributes the segment QPTFLNGSPAEISPLAR to the fifth motif within the lysyl-tRNA synthetase fingerprint.
Annotation/TextFamily annotation for each fingerprint bearing general documentation, citations and database cross-references.
ClassificationFingerprint type, e.g. proteins represented by the 'Lysyl-tRNA synthetase signature' are ligases or ligase-like and are classified as Ligases

All searches are case InSeNsItIvE and, where indicated, can be carried out with a regular expression.

Display Options
Names OnlyDisplays headings (PRINTS accession number, identifier and family title) for each entry found.
PRINTS ViewA tabular view of an entire fingerprint. As many fingerprints contain data for several hundred protein sequences this view is limited to the standard search form and it will only display up to 5 entries in full whereafter it will revert to 'Names only' display.
InterPro ViewAn InterPro-compatible view which is limited as above. This view is a condensed version for obtaining relevant motif data.
Family DocumentationFamily doucmentation in an InterPro-compatible format. This documentation contains information on the family, database cross-references and citiations.

Search Options
ANDRequires ALL terms to be present within a database entry for it to be displayed. This operator is used to narrow and coordinate searches.
ORRequires ANY term to be present within a database entry for it to be displayed. It is used to broaden searches and to include related terms.
AND NOTThis operator EXCLUDES any database entry that contains a term. It is used to narrow a search and to limit false assignments.
These operators are executed in order of appearance, e.g. X AND Y OR Z AND NOT A is executed as ( ( X AND Y ) OR Z ) AND NOT A
